Cat-binet Curiosa

My mother is a strange creature...at once sentimental and as cold blooded as a Mafia hit man.
Our first cat, Minou, was a beautiful long haired yellow male, with a hateful demeanor and a tendency to pee on everything.
Of course her solution was to lock him in basket in the bathroom every night.

She kept him for years, until one day he peed on the dining room floor.
 That's when he "disappeared."

I was inconsolable, heartbroken.

Soon afterward my mother, however, started up a collection of cat figurines
Most of which she put a case hanging right about Minou's last pissing spot.
(Edgar Allan Poe, eat your heart out)

Anyway, here are some of the freakier denizens of her curio cabinet:

"The Gift" (from hell?) a butterfly/ cat genetic experiment gone wrong

A tiny sleeping dead cat, made of mouse? fur.

An articulated Puss in Boots

a trio of ghouls from your worst nightmares

true colors

I'm thinking of painting my room.
Not sure which color yet.
Moral Ambiguity Gray or Anal Bleach perhaps?

If You Were Born Today

Today I stumbled upon
 Time Magazine's "Find Out What Your Name Would Be If You Were Born Today"
name-generator
It takes the relative popularity of your name in the year you were born and matches it with a name of the same popularity for various decades.

To my horror, apparently my name today would be the abomination:
"Kayden"
 Kayden? WTF

This sounds like something one of the Kardashians is probably going to name her 3rd grandchild.

Anywho, here's a list of the other decades, none of which are terribly inspiring, but all
better than Kayden:
2000s =Mario
1990s =Hector
Hector
1980s=Reginald
 
1970s= Greg
 
1960s=Kerry
 
1950s=Herman
 ... Gwynne played the role of Herman Munster on the TV comedy The Munsters
1940s=Sidney

 
1930s=Oliver
 
1920s=Clifton
 Clifton Webb
1910s=Dave 
 
1900s=Franklin

Thankfully, it seems my name in the1890s would be
the much sexier "Sylvester"
Yes!
At last a name I can get behind.
